Lily Rose’s Clever Country Storytelling

Lily Rose is one of country’s newest stars and is steadily rising through the ranks as a groundbreaking artist. She first went viral in late 202o with the release of her single, “Villain.” Now, Lily Rose is redefining country storytelling with rap and pop influences. She released “I’d Be You” in June, a three minute track recounting a former relationship and the ways she went wrong.

Gaining Fame and Nominations

Nominated for the Academy of Country Music’s “New Female Artist of the Year,” Lily Rose has been on a roll. Her single “Villain” skyrocketed to the top of the iTunes chart in 2020 after the track went viral on TikTok. Since then, Rose has gained more than 850,000 followers and more than 6 million likes. She has since played venues with country stars like Chris Lane and Sam Hunt.

Lily Rose’s New Single, “I’d Be You”

Her most recent single, “I’d Be You,” is a retelling of jealousy and regret over an ended relationship. With a signature country twang, Lily Rose sings “If I had just paid attention / instead of paying no mind / If I had gave her my heart / instead of hell all the time / I’d be you.” Lily Rose recounts the pain that comes with seeing an ex out with someone new, and ultimately understanding what led them to find someone else. Her voice is smooth and unwavering, and reminiscent of some of country’s most memorable stars.

Interesting Influences

Though Lily Rose’s discography is largely new-age country, she is influenced by a range of genres and artists. In interviews and on her website, Rose has stated that artists like Bruce Springsteen, Keith Urban, Katy Perry and J. Cole have inspired her. Such a diverse taste in music is apparent in her clever storytelling and booming backing melodies.
